Warriors strengthen frontcourt, sign Amundson to 2-year deal


Posted Sep 14 2010 6:19AM

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- The Golden State Warriors have signed free agent forward Louis Amundson to a two-year contract, with the second year being a player option.

Golden State general manager Larry Riley says the team has been interested in adding the well-traveled Amundson for several weeks, and that he adds key depth to the Warriors' frontcourt. Amundson could provide a key rebounding presence inside that the team has lacked, too.

He averaged career-bests of 4.7 points and 4.4 rebounds in 14.8 minutes per game for the Suns last season. He appeared in 79 games as a key reserve. He also played in all 16 of Phoenix's postseason games in a run that ended in the Western Conference Finals, averaging 2.9 points and 3.5 rebounds in 12.1 minutes of action.
